Talk about being on thin ice.http://www.lordsofpain.net/news/wwe/...rmination.html
Following WWE's announcement Wednesday that Randy Orton had been suspended for 60 days for his second violation of the Talent Wellness Program, the SmackDown wrestler met with Chairman Vince McMahon, Executive Vice President of Talent and Live Events Paul Levesque and Executive Vice President of Television Production Kevin Dunn at the organization's headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut on Friday.
A WWE source described the meeting's atmosphere as "hostile;" it was determined that a further decision concerning Orton awaits. Furthermore, "several" officials are lobbying for his termination as a cost-cutting measure. They feel his lucrative ten-year contract—signed in January 2010—can no longer be justified if he is brought back in a mid-level role.
McMahon especially, is infuriated with Orton, who felt he had matured in recent years. The nine-time world champion's suspension reportedly stems from a positive drug test for the anabolic steroid Dianabol, which is banned by the United States Congress under its Controlled Substances Act. He also reportedly tested positive for marijuana, which is subject to a $2,500 fine.
